  • Philip was taxed for 50 acres of land during 1783 and acquired 300 acres of Land Warranty on 4 December 1784 in Hempfield Township. (Penn's Archives, Milliron Records). The 1800 Federal Census, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, lists Philip living in Wheatfield Township; the 1810 and 1830 Federal Census Records show Philip living in Fairfield Township, where he died around 1836. At the time of his death, Philip owned some 500 acres of land.

    A Founder of Milliron Church:
    The original log church first served a congregation that withdrew from Harrold's Church over strife among Lutherans and Reformeds during the time Rev. Weber was establishing churches throughout southwestern Pennsylvania. Records indicate that Tobias Long and Philip Muelheisen, signers together with Rev. Weber, of the original Weber property documents, largely were influential in the founding of the Muelheisen Church, eventually called "Milliron," the English translation of Muelheisen, a German name.

    The John William Weber Memorial Site History:
    An itinerant, or circuit-riding minister typical of the times, Rev. Weber had been criss-crossing these western Pennsylvania hills founding new churches since 1783. Seeking to perpetuate his church work, Rev. Weber. Together with several members of a recently founded congregation, purchased the property for "two pounds and 10 shillings lawful money of Pennsylvania . . . forever in trust for the use of said German Reformed Presbyterian Congregations for erecting and building a church school-house and other necessary buildings and improvements from time to time to be made thereon," as stated in a deed signed June 23, 1802 and recorded February 15, 1820. This document is filed in Deed Book 14, page 228 in the Recorder of Deeds office, Westmoreland County Court House, in Greensburg, PA.

    The purchase was preceded by a grant-of-land warrant issued some years earlier, on February 13, 1786, with a follow-up survey made on September 6, 1786, on recorded in Survey Book 1, page 57, at the Westmoreland County Recorder of Deeds office.

    Then, while not recorded officially until 1870, there also exists at the Court House in Greensburg, in Deed Book 66, page 86, an additional instrument, dated March 6, 1813, specifying more clearly the use and purpose for the property purchase. Signed by William Weaver (Weber) and Philip Milleison (Muelheisen), it states further, in part, that "be it further understood that all members of the Reformed Presbyterian Congregation . . . and their heirs, are hereby entitled to an equal privilege (s.c.) on the same as a place of worship School and Burying Ground forever during the ages; as long as Sun and Moon shines, Water runs and Trees grow, none of the members Connected in the said Congregation shall have a privilege to make sale of said land to any person whatsoever, or in anywise put the same to any other use . . ."

    According to historical records, a log structure, known originally as the Muelheisen Church, was erected on the site, and the adjacent cemetery established, where the remains of Rev. Weber are interred.

    The existing Chapel was known earlier as the Milliron Church, "Milliron" being the English translation of the German name Muelheisen, the same Philip Muelheisen being one of those largely influential in founding the original congregation, together with Tobias Long and Rev. Weber. The church served a small congregation of Reformed churchgoers until dissolution around the year 1869 and then, in 1956,was refurbished by the former Pittsburgh Synod of the Reformed Church (now United Church of Christ) as a memorial to Pastor Weber.

    The original log church first served a congregation that withdrew from Harrold's Church over strife among Lutherans and Reformeds during the time Rev. Weber was establishing churches throughout southwestern Pennsylvania. Records indicate that Tobias Long and Philip Muelheisen, signers together with Rev. Weber, of the original Weber property documents, largely were influential in the founding of the Muelheisen Church, eventually called "Milliron," the English translation of Muelheisen, a German name.

  • On 7 September 1957 at Sauk, Wisconsin, Mrs. Emma Mercer Has Birthday - Spring Green - Sauk Birth, Early Marriage, Her Recipe for Life Until 103 - If you want to live to be 103, go get yourself born in Sauk county, get married in Arena at the age of 20 and live with the same man for 77 years. That's a few of the things that Mrs. Emma Mercer did and she celebrated her 103rd birthday this summer out in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
    Mrs. Mercer was born Emma Rutherford on June 27, 1854 in the southwest corner of Sauk county. She remembers the coming of the first railroad train to Lone Rock and as a child waved goodbye to Wisconsin soldiers leaving for the Civil War. She attended a Ringling Brothers circus in 1872 and thinks that this was the first year they were on the road. She likes to test her remarkable memory by telling the story of the red and blue shoes. Her mother bought these for her when she was only 2 1/2. She can verify her age by the fact that her younger sister had not been born yet. The Mercers were among the earliest settlers in the area that was to become Spring Green. Amos Mercer left the northwest with his wife and children and a few household goods in 1847 on account of hard-times in Illinois. They travelled overland with a team and light wagon by way of Peoria and Galena to Mineral Point. Mr. Mercer tried lead mining for three weeks, but failing to make a success of it, left his family at Mineral Point and walked north until he struck the Wisconsin river at Leech's Crossing, a short distance from old Richland City. He crossed the river on a log canoe furnished by Mr. Leech. Coming to the mouth of Bear Creek he spent the night with the McClouds and in the morning bargained for 80 acres which he improved and sold in 1852. It was then that he purchased the farm in the Spring Green area where he and his family lived for 58 years. There were only three ahead of the Mercers when they reached their new farm: Dalby on the D. E. Mead farm; Rodgers where Vet Peck later lived and Evan Jones at High Bank. The post office for this region was at Franklin known more recently as Highland. The village of Spring Green had not yet been born. Sam Mercer married Emma Rutherford at Arena on Jan. 27, 1872. At one time they were proclaimed the oldest married couple in the United States. They had been married 77 years at the time of Mr. Mercer's death in 1949. Mr. Mercer embraced his wife a few days before he died and observed, using his pet name for her: "Well, sweet Marie, if we had been put down on a bare rock we would have made a living." And the "rock" must have seemed mighty bare at times because years ago the Mercers took-off for Iowa and later moved on to Missouri by covered wagon. Here they were stopped and questioned by Frank and Jesse James and the mother of the desperadoes became their nearest neighbor when they settled at Whitman, Mo. They were in Marrville, Mo. the day President Garfield was shot. 1901 found them homesteading up at Willow Lake, South Dakota and, after living elsewhere in the state, they finally took up permanent residence at Sioux Falls. But Mrs. Emma Mercer still considers herself a Sauk County and Wisconsin girl even though she has been away so many years. She is particularly happy when her own relatives from Wisconsin are able to come to her birthday party. Clarence McCarthy and his family from Benton, Wis. were there this year. Mr. McCarthy is a nephew and used to farm in Bear Vally before moving to Benton and obtaining employment in Dubuque.6
